Drama Class To Perform Three Musketeer Comedy

If you're on the square in downtown Memphis in the middle of the afternoon and hear raucous laughter coming from the theater, no, the Memphis Community Players have not added an afternoon matinee to their schedule of movies. Instead, the laughter is coming from Mrs. Couch and the Scotland County R-I drama class enjoying their work in preparation for the upcoming spring play.

Rehearsals have begun for "The Three Musketeers, All Swash and No Buckle," a two-act comedy written by Pat Cook as a humorous parody of the Alexander Dumas classic. This spoof of 17th Century France pulls out all the stops and is full of outrageous characters such as the title characters played by Clint Cottrell, Matthew Glass and Kiel Fogle, with musketeer want-to-be Davin Newman cast as D'artagnan.

In addition to three swashbucklers, Thomas Miller plays the villain Rochefort, Reece Hogarth portrays Cardinal Richelieu and Andy Graham takes the role of Lord Buckingham.

Moreover, the play contains a bevy of lovely ladies played by Amy Morgan, Becky Miller, Stevie Simerl, Christine Kirchner, Emily Kiddoo, Megan Jayne, Jessica Lambert and Brandi Blakeburn.

"The play is full of hilarious, fast-paced dialogue and action," said SCR-I drama instructor Mary Couch. "The students in the cast are all well-suited to their parts and seem to agree that the show is full of laughs. However, by show time we promise that we'll leave the laughter to the audience."

Don't miss "The Three Musketeers All Swash and No Buckle." Presented by the SCR-I Drama Department on March 27-29 at 7:00 p.m. at the Memphis Theatre. Advanced tickets will be available soon from the high school office.
